Kilimanjaro Fire Update

Last August, there was a fire on part of Kilimanjaro that burned a big area. The latest news is that poachers must have set the fire. While I know there are poachers on parts of Kilimanjaro, especially more on the north side and near Shira, I am not sure why they would have set a fire. Perhaps to push some animals out of the forest?

When I lived on Kilimanjaro, right near the border of the Kilimanjaro National Park, I heard that only monkeys where left on the southside, and people would occasionally hunt them, but I cannot confirm this.
